Circa 1920's Canton Painted Glass Panel from Large Lantern Canton Red Swordsman

Circa 1920's Canton Painted Glass Panel from Large Lantern.
Sadly not a complete lantern but these rarely seen export pieces have not survived but this panel has.
From a old antique dealer, they saved a few pieces from their old store, a swordsman floats in the center of the glass with slight gold thin lines for the interior.
The Red, coral red is typical of the Canton Reds from late 1800's to early 1900's stands out boldly, while the blue and gold make the figure's detailed clothing jump off the glass. The Glass has small bubbles giving the indication of the age.

The wood frame is a stylized dragon on the top and the edges have angle fittings where the other panels would connect.
